She is very energetic and kept my interest most the time. I have had a very bad math background, and she was quite accommodating to me. I honestly don't understand the bad reviews, I would definitely recommend her. Also, she is definitely simple on the eyes!

I don't know why everyone seems to not like Mrs. Nichols, she is definitely one of the BEST prof.s that I have had at Baylor! She is very friendly, teaches well, and offers extra credit every week! (all you do is write a paragraph on what you thought of the material that you learned that week). Also, she offers UNLIMITED tries per problem!

Ms. Nichols class is very simple. Everything in this class I learned my sophomore year in HS. If you are great in math, take her, because you still learn by going back over old things, but it's pretty much a blow off class. Nichols as a person is super sweet, and her office is always open, and is always on Skype if you want to video chat for help!

Awful. Just awful. I started out this class thinking it would be pretty simple since she seems really friendly and all. But within a few weeks I was struggling. And it only got worse from there. If you have little or no calculus background at all, do wdislikever you can to avoid taking Nichols.

Most people that complain about her class just aren't willing to do the work. If you are (and she is always available for extra help) then you should do fine. She has high standards and if you do well you'll learn a lot. Look in the mirror and be honest with yourself before you complain about her.

She writes out everything which wastes a bunch of time in class... expects you to work out all of your problems which becomes a pain. Don't get mymathlab. You won't understand the concepts on the exams and you won't finish them sometimes b/c there's so much work on them. It's much more worth it to just use the textbook. And get a tutor.

Really friendly as a person, but I personally couldn't learn from her. I failed my first two exams after difficultcore studying because she grades very difficult and teaches very little. I had to get a tutor for this class.
